12/7/14 Heading to Pass Christian

It was a very quiet night at the Hammond Camping World.  I wanted to get out of there before they opened as they're pretty iffy on the overnight parking thing so I didn't want to be seen as abusing it.  When I had asked the night before they said "No" initially.  I think the gal only relented because it was 15 minutes prior to closing, it was dark, and I probably looked exhausted.  So I thought lingering would be a bit rude. Thank god they open at 10 am on Sundays. :-)

Leaving the store I came upon this scene right before the entrance to I-10. Since I didn't feel like sitting waiting for this, and the detour took me by Cracker Barrel, I stopped for pancakes. :-)

I continued on I-10 to the MS State line.  They have a really nice welcome center, and the Infinity Science Center, an annex of NASAs Stennis Space Center, nearby. Unfortunately that was closed on Sunday so I guess I'll catch it next time. I got onto highway 90 and drove through Waveland and Bay St. Louis before ending up in Pass Christian MS.  I had read of a place you could park for 1 night right next to the beach.  Wow. Just wow.  These beaches are incredible.

I found this little gal on the beach. She was still alive, but barely, claws waving feebly.

I flipped her over and then put her back in the water.  Unfortunately she didn't make it.

Big firepit on the beach. You need a permit to use it.

This pier belonged to a multi million dollar mansion across the street from the beach.  There is apparently some $$ in this town.
